MAKE: a DIY wreath from a old sweater.
I’m pretty sure that sweater weather is one of my favorite times of the year. Maybe that’s why I have so many sweaters?
My problem is that I don’t wear all the sweaters I own. A few months ago, I cleaned out my closet and I was getting ready to donate a worn and stretched out gray sweater. Before I took it to Goodwill, I moved it into my craft area, because I saw potential with the color and material!
Inspired by the gray and white pom pom wreath that I found this year (that you saw in my holiday home decor haul video), I thought that this sweater would make a great little wreath! It did! And a snowy looking owl ornament was a cute woodland accent to make this project the perfect cold weather wreath.
You probably already spotted this little sweater wreath in my holiday home tour and in the snowball wreath tutorial. It looked great next to the two other white and gray wreaths, plus two other white winter animal decorations I already owned.
This sweater wreath was quite simple and easy to make. I’m sharing a quick tutorial for how to make one in this week’s video below. I think my favorite part about this wreath is the little owl and his bright, blue eyes!
